First spotted at last September’s EuroBike show, Fizik has at long last launched its 3D-printed Antares Versus Evo 00 Adaptive saddle.
To develop its latest perch, Fizik partnered with the US company Carbon, renown for its innovative 3D-printing process called Carbon Digital Light Synthesis.
“Our process uses a digital ultraviolet light projection, oxygen-permeable optics, and programmable liquid resins to produce parts with excellent mechanical properties, resolution and surface finish.” says Carbon.
The same lattice structure used to create the “seat” portion of the Antares Versus Evo 00 Adaptive was also used in the making of the carbon fiber rails, something Fizik claims “provides improved power transfer, shock absorption, stability and comfort with four zones that work together to provide improved comfort over regular saddles.”
According to Fizik, the Antares Versus Evo 00 Adaptive comprises “multiple functional zones”, wherein each zone has been “tuned” to provide “distinctive cushioning” and “optimal mechanical response” within a seamless, padded design.
Additionally, despite being a lightweight, lattice structure, Fizik says the new saddle can withstand severe temperatures ranging from -4 degrees to more than 155 degrees Fahrenheit, as well as provide UV protection and abrasion resistance.
The Antares Versus Evo 00 Adaptive saddle is available on two sizes, which sells for $399.
